Connor is now sixteen months old and has a really good temperament, most of the time, he is really well behaved although a little mischievous, only what you would expect from a one year old little boy. But recently, over the past week or so he has started having tantrums, it tends to be when he is not allowed something or we take something off him, he will throw whatever is closest to him, get down onto all fours and start head butting the floor and he isn't gentle about it, his tantrums don't last long but they are very distressing to watch as a parent and also upsetting for Connor. He calms soon after he has started and continues as if it never happened!
Dealing with him is made harder as he is yet too young to understand what we are telling him, it seems all his frustration and anger is let out in one short burst and a couple of buts. I think his emotions just get bigger than he is and the only way for him to communicate how he feels to us is through these little fits. I'm hoping its just a phase and we haven't hit the "terrible twos" early.
If anyone has any experience or advice on this matter please leave a comment, I would really appreciate any help with these tantrums! You can also leave advice here.
